Housing needs in the post-coronavirus
Optimizing the domestic spaces.
Our homes have been conceived for lifestyles that the Lockdown due to the Coronavirus has completely revolutionized.
The model of sharing common spaces, went into crisis. Designed for convivial or relaxation, Smartworking, Remote Teaching and new forms of Tele-Work have put them to the test. Smaller houses could stand on the assumption that key activities were carried out outside: in the office, in the factory, at school.
Most of the houses today are not structured to host reserved work spaces and the trends of recent years have favored the creation of Open-Spaces that are more functional for convivial moments or family life in common.
When the living room table is overbooked
It is the most frequent and striking case of disputed spaces in families affected by the lockdown. Sharing the table lowers work efficiency and limits the ability to participate in online meetings with the necessary privacy and concentration required.
Privacy necessary for work and study
The long stay at home has brought back the need for separate spaces to accommodate the privacy of each member of the family. The open-space, the sharing of areas of the house makes sense, when the use is not contemporary and permanent by all members of the family. The ideal condition for work or study from home would be a personal room with a desk, but this is not feasible in most of the current housing situations. From this need, the “conquest” of common spaces starts, often becoming a source of stress, penalizing concentration and efficient organization of activities.
Ergonomics of the computer desk: a key factor.
Workplace ergonomics is another key factor in the well-being of working from home. working with the laptop (the most popular device) for a long time in improvised postures puts a strain on the musculoskeletal systems of the body and eyesight. Notebooks, laptops and tablets have been designed for mobility and when used for a long time as a desktop, they require suitable supports to overcome their ergonomic limits. Poor postures, are source of stress and disabling diseases such as cervical pain, backpain, carpal tunnel syndrome.

And this is how the sofa, the armchair and even the bed or deckchair on the terrace become workstations for notebooks and tablets. with the additional advantage of correct ergonomics of use and the convenience of furnishing elements designed for rest and physical well-being.

Or you can join the video conference lying on the bed or on the deckchair in the garden.
